Products to help combat the challenges of COVID-19


Do you have a product to help our corporate members combat the challenges of COVID-19?

Our CEO, Elizabeth Vazquez, published a blog post on the 19th March about how this crisis highlights the increased need for supplier diversity:

As a matter of priority and urgency, we would like to understand whether any of the women-owned businesses in the WEConnect International network in Europe can manufacture or distribute products that could help our corporate members around the world to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. As a global team, we are collating a list of our businesses who can provide products and we are going to be sharing that list mid-next week.

At this time we are only looking to feature physical products in the list and as such, I’m afraid we are not looking for service based offerings such as training, marketing etc.

So if your business manufactures or distributes products such as: hand sanitisers, cleaning products, cleaning chemicals, face masks, gloves, protective clothing or other relevant equipment etc. please can you prepare one PowerPoint slide (in a widescreen format) that details the following type of information:

  • Name of company and logo
  • Contact details / website address
  • Products available and a brief description - e.g. photo / illustration / weight / size / packing
  • Distribution channels / locations - where you can deliver products to
  • Order / quote instructions - e.g. lead time / terms / quote validity
  • And any other information that would be relevant for your firm

Please only send one slide in PowerPoint (widescreen) format and please send it to myself and Emma Duncan - - by close of business on Tuesday 24th March 2020. Unfortunately, we can’t accept Word documents, PDFs or other file formats.

We appreciate this isn’t a huge amount of time for you to submit the information but we are working to a tight turnaround time in order to provide your business information to our corporate members as soon as we can - thank you.
